Barclays Eagle Lab is the latest big name to commit to supporting Tech Show North, which is shaping up to be the largest commercial and B2B tech event staged outside London.

The accelerator programme, which has labs in Manchester, Salford, Liverpool, Sheffield and Hull, gives entrepreneurs the chance to scale and grow their business and receive advice from experts.

It will be an Event Partner and is also sponsoring the Tech Bazaar at the two-day expo, which takes place on May 8th and 9th at Event City in Manchester. UKFast is the event's Lead Sponsor with GP Bullhound and PwC signed up as theatre sponsors.

Mark Robinson, Regional Head of High Growth and Entrepreneurs at Barclays, said: “Barclays is proud to be an event sponsor at next year’s Tech Show North event and sponsor the ‘Tech Bazaar’ theatre where we are looking forward to seeing the most innovative and exciting new technologies coming out of Manchester.

“We recognise the importance of supporting entrepreneurs, start-ups and accelerating high-growth companies, and the vital role they play in creating a sustainable, prosperous Manchester economy.

“Technology is now transforming the speed at which start-ups can grow and scale and by providing world class facilities like our new Manchester Eagle Lab alongside our financial expertise we intend to help individuals, entrepreneurs and businesses to innovate, network and ultimately succeed.”

Sponsored by UKFast and delivered by Prolific North and Don't Panic, Tech Show North is expected to attract up to 3,000 visitors and over 120 exhibitors.

Lawrence Jones MBE, CEO of cloud hosting brand UKFast, the event's lead sponsor, said: “I have long said that we’re in the midst of an industrious revolution, so to hear Tech Show North describe how the North of England is driving the fourth industrial revolution is music to my ears!

“I am proud to back an event that showcases the extraordinary technical talent of Manchester and beyond. Tech Show North is set to be one of the biggest exhibits centred around technology within the enterprise so it’s a perfect fit for UKFast. We’re excited to be a part of the show and meet more of our region’s extraordinary digital business leaders.”

Tech Show North will sit alongside our two hugely successful and established events, Marketing Show North - which returns in February - and eCommerce Show North, which enjoyed a hugely successful return last month.

Whether you are at Business 1.0 in need of insight and inspiration, or you are a future-thinker eager to share your ideas and boost your presence as a leader in tech, Tech Show North will be simply unmissable.

There are a number of different ways in which businesses and organisations can get involved in Tech Show North, from booking a stand to a wide range of sponsorship opportunities. We are also eager to hear from experiential companies who can help stimulate conversation and sprinkle their own unique ‘fairy dust’.
